As another minor point, though, I'm not aware of any freely-available
OS that supports bridging more than two interfaces--unless there
have been recent improvements to the OSs mentioned above.  That
means that the proposed four-interface bridge above can't happen.

Too bad, too, because I need to do something similar.  The only
filtering/firewalling bridge of which I'm aware that can handle
more than two interfaces is the Lucent Managed Firewall, which
costs serious money but also includes a management GUI etc.

If anyone knows of a way to bridge more than two interfaces on the
same box, please send a correction to the list...
